Description

This route is an interesting route, but it's short length and unintersting position merit only one star. Still, if you are at this crag, it's worth a go. On the SW face, find a drastically right-leaning crack that passes to a bulge after 5M. Clim up the crack past a crux undercling, then up over the slight bulge to the jugs and edges above. The angle up top kicks back into a crack, or you can go a little further right to finish on the Alligator Lizard face. The crux move is a little awkward, but once that is passed, the climb is easy.

Protection

I soloed it, so I have never lead the route, but it appeared protectable with cams from finger to fist sized. It can be set as a TR from above with a standard selection of gear as well.

Harder than a 9, even by Jtree standards. Many 10a routes in the park are easier than this! Burly, awkward, but also fun in a weird way.
The gear is more than adequate. Jan 2, 2017
